1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Favorite patterns to use handspun yarns with? on: February 12, 2010 04:38:51 PM
Thanks for posting this, I'm not the one who originally asked the question, but I have a first ball of yarn I spun during this winter storm, and this was exactly what I needed!  I've got it underway and it's looking great, I'll post a picture when I finish.

Great job, my daughters love this, they're going to make tutus for their dolls now, too!

Jenette- just curious if you ever did make this, and if so, how it turned out?  With spring coming up I was thinking of making one for my daughter.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Adjusting size of Toasty Topper? on: November 06, 2008 07:08:32 PM
I want to make Knitty's Toasty Topper (http://knitty.com/issuewinter07/PATTtoasty.html) for my son, but he's almost five, and has a big head, so I'm thinking I need to make it a little bigger.  Do you think using bulkier yarn and bigger needles will be okay?  I know enough about knitting to know you can do that with some stuff, but not enough to know whether it works in every case?  What do you think?

Beautiful work.  You're so lucky you still have a Gran to craft for.

Peppermint bark is super easy, doesn't require candymaking skills, but looks impressive.  Do a search, there are several threads on here with the specifics of how to make it.

That's gorgeous.  Did you use a pattern or wing it?
8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Does anybody knw how to make coffee gounds "rocks"? on: March 20, 2007 05:11:27 PM
I know this is an OLD thread, but thanks to all who contributed.  I just bought my son one of those "archaology" things that has a dinosaur encased in some sort of sandy dirt mixture and you have to dig him out.  My husband wants to make some as gag gifts for his co-workers, he's a geologist.  I knew Craftster would have an idea for me.
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: New CrochetMe is out! on: September 19, 2006 01:29:22 PM
You bring up a good question.  It's one I would like clarification on as a designer.  I have a friend who wrote a cookbook, and in that case she said that legally if you change a recipe 30% you can call it yours.  So I would like to find out what it is for patterns, how much DO you have to change something to call it your own?   If you take a knit pattern and convert it to crochet is it yours, or is it a derivative work?  These are questions I've been meaning to research, but I'm not even sure where to start.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: I can't hold yarn properly? on: September 19, 2006 10:07:32 AM
I've found that it depends on the yarn I'm using whether I just wrap it over my index finger, or whether I wrap it over both my index finger and my pinky.  Fuzzier yarn requires one finger, skinnier or smoother yarn needs both.  Also, I assume you've wound your yarn into a ball- it sometimes works to crochet from the skein but the yarn gets hung up and doesn't flow as well as from a ball.  And make sure the ball itself isn't sitting in a spot that has a lot of friction.  Where the ball of yarn is located in relation to your body can make a big difference in how well the yarn flows, I've found it's usually best to let the yarn sit on the floor.  If you don't want hairs and carpet fuzz to get worked into it, set it inside a bowl or plastic storage container.
